Hi Ernst!

As described on one of our documents on best practices for MySQL connection within Confluence, as you can see here, we recommend setting up the database using case-sensitive collation. Using any other collation or charset is unsupported and may lead to problems with indexes or data storage.



Hi thanks for your answer. Confluence is now installed on a case insensitive server, is there a way to convert the database to case sensitive?

I have another MySQL server but when I create the database, it creates it automatically with utf_general_ci collation. Is this OK? I don't have access to the command line on this server to create the database.

never mind, i have created a new database, run a query via phpmyadmin to set the correct collation and run the confluence setup wizard again. ALTER DATABASE confluence CHARACTER SET utf8 COLLATE utf8_bin
